AnxieTea was founded to help people better understand and deal with this wide-spread illness. Here at AnxieTea, we are dedicated in aiding all those affected by anxiety - those with the mental illness and those close to them as well. We work to provide a multitude of resources that allow people to identify with the actual experience of having anxiety and educate themselves on the illness itself. By doing this, we hope to fulfill our goal of helping friends and family improve how they assist their loved ones work through the difficult symptoms of anxiety.
We understand that anxiety, both the experience and how it can affect one’s life, is a huge problem. Although there are a multitude of resources for people with anxiety, there is not a website that complies them all in one place. We also realized that it is often difficult to to help people with anxiety if you do not truly understand the experience of it.
We compiled an abundance of resources about dealing with anxiety, created a page to help calm people with anxiety, added a multitude of features to help people understand the experience of anxiety, and made a forum to help create a caring and sharing community.
We couldn’t figure out how to develop a forum directly in our html document without a server. So, instead we ended up finding a way to outsource one and attach it to the tab bar in our html document. Now, users can openly communicate with each other to help create an open community that helps each other where they can.
